AW YEAH Comics-Skokie has a great new location!

We moved! Aw Yeah Comics has moved, but we are STILL in Beautiful Downtown Skokie, less than 300 yards from where we were. Our new location is 7925 Lincoln Ave., across from the Skokie Theater, and we ARE NOW OPEN! Our phone number, web address, and e-mail address are all the same as before. he only thing that has changed is the physical location. We are open for business and can't wait for you to see the new digs. Stop on by. Also, it would be a huge help if you could spread the word to your friends and family! We'll see you at the shop. Aw Yeah Comics!

Skokie plans 'Small Business Saturday' after Thanksgiving

Hey ladies! Please consider stopping by Aw Yeah on Small Business Saturday!

While many consider the day after Thanksgiving — Black Friday —the year's biggest shopping day, Skokie officials also have their eyes set on the following day.

A Mighty Girl

We've had many of these in stock before, and will be restocking a bunch over the coming weeks. Let us know if there is anything you would like us to order for you!

While many people think of graphic novels as "just comic books", the truth is that a good graphic novel doesn't simplify a story: instead, it amplifies it, drawing out details and adding emotional weight. For young or reluctant readers, in particular, a graphic novel format makes it easier to understand more complex stories. In fact, we'd argue that high-quality graphic novels are a key part of any library!

With the growing popularity of this literary form, there's been a tremendous increase in the number of graphic novels published in recent years, including ones for children. To help you discover the best girl-empowering titles, we've showcased 40 of our favorite Mighty Girl graphic novels in a new blog post. The first half of our post focuses on graphic novels that are fantasy driven, while the second half highlights ones that are grounded in real-life — but no matter the theme, all of the graphic novels featured tell the stories of smart, confident, and courageous Mighty Girls!

To read our new blog post, "A Mighty Girl's Ultimate Guide to
Girl-Empowering Graphic Novels for Kids," visit http://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=13390

For teen and adult readers, we've highlighted our favorite graphic novels that tackle more challenging material in our post "Expanding the Story: Mighty Girl Graphic Novels for Teens," visit http://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=10170

And, for nearly 150 graphic novels for both children and teens on a variety of themes, visit our special feature on the "Top Graphic Novels Starring Mighty Girls" at http://www.amightygirl.com/mighty-girl-picks/graphic-novels

It looks like a good chunk of our ladies will not be able to make it to tonight's event. For that reason we will be cancelling this Month's Ladies Night and looking to reschedule at a later date. If you know anyone who usually attends but isn't on Facebook it would be a big help if you could pass the word along.

Thanks!

Kurt!

Christina Blanch: I own a very family friendly comic book shop. Our first floor is 1800 square feet and we have a large kid’s section there.

Meet ELECTRA WOMAN AND DYNA GIRL in the Film’s First Full Trailer | Nerdist

Thankful though we are to be living through the heyday of superhero cinema, any fan among us is sure to have one or two complaints about the genre's big screen state. Some feel that the films can veer too dark and cynical. Some take issue with the deficit of strong female heroes at the centers of th…

Awesome turnout to Art & Franco's drawing contest at C2E2!! Everybody loves Aw Yeah Comics

Happy International Women's Day! Aw Yeah Comics, neither the store nor the staff, would be what it is without our female friends and fans. So it is fitting that this message gets posted today! Over the last few months, or longer, really, we have seen steep drop off in attendance. There have always been questions about who to gear the group toward, and what to focus on. Combine that with 2015's lack of Yellow Line train service disrupting our entire event calendar, and it is no wonder things began to falter. But, your experience here in the shop, on regular days, as well as special events, and reaching out to other female fan/customers of ours to welcome them is WAY too important for us to give up on. So... CALLING ALL LADIES! Starting with tomorrow evening's Ladies Night, we are redoubling our efforts to bring it back to former glory and beyond. Check in the comments below for some of the changes/ideas headed your way

Fantagraphics Books

Excellent list!

Bitch Magazine shares "an A to Z of great graphic novels by women." including two Fantagraphics comics:

The Heart of Thomas By Moto Hagio

At a German boys’ school, the arrival of a new student stirs memories of a boy who recently committed suicide, leaving a tangle of unresolved feelings behind him. Hagio’s 1974 masterpiece, one of the progenitors of homoerotic “boys’ love” manga, is a master class in the power of comics to express emotion, every delicately lined page exploding with passion.

You’ll Never Know: A Good and Decent Man By Carol Tyler

The first graphic novel by underground and alt-cartooning legend Carol Tyler, You’ll Never Know alternates between the horrors her father experienced in WWII and the scars his trauma left on their family for generations. Drawn in an expansive landscape format, it pulses with symbolic depictions of the characters’ unspoken inner lives. The second volume is Collateral Damage.

Adventure Bug Legion!

Adventure Bug Legion!

Ladies & Gentlemen, Boys & Girls, Adventure Bug Legion is GO! Adventure Bug, one of the store mascots and stars of the Aw Yeah Comics series, has big plans for the kids who come into the shop. At least twice a month, sometimes on Saturdays and sometimes on Sundays, we will have kid friendly activities here in the store. Coloring, pen pals, super hero mash up, games, making masks and capes, creating their own comics, ,learning about puppets, and so much more. The vast majority of these events will be completely free to the public. From time to time if there is a charge, it is simply to cover excess materials. There will be more info in the comments section!

We're taking January off, so no Ladies' Night tonight. We'll see you in February!

01/11/2016

Hey ladies! Kurtwooddotcom here! I noticed there wasn't an actual event posted to this page about a January Ladies Night, which would be this Wednesday. So for scheduling purposes I just wanted to check and see if January is a skip month. Either way is cool with me. I can stay late to lock up the shop afterwards. Just let me know! Aw yeah!

Comic books may seem like a boys' club, but there are plenty of great graphic novel options out there for readers who want their illustrated books with less misogyny and steroids. But you might miss these fantastic titles if you don't know where to look. If you're looking for graphic novels written
